At the top of the taskbar it shows that Aterm is running. That, however, does not mean that the text-on-background thing (which is what's being asked about) is an aterm. Notice that there is a terminal window open in order to take the screen-shot? That is the aterm. I still recon that the logs scrolling over the background is being done with root-tail. One major thing that is leading me to this conclusion is the fact that the log messages have been colourised showing which entry is from which log... something that I have found very useful in root-tail. Sure, you could do this with a normal transparent terminal, removing all traces of the borders and scrollbar, using the normal tail command and passing it to a colouriser, but surely it's easier to use root-tail?
